Subject River & Project Guest VM
Date Sun, 23 Aug 2009 10:10:38 GMT
Project Guest VM sounds interesting, a JVM written in JAVA running on 
Xen with a microkernel written in C.

Perhaps by using etherboot:

One could boot Xen + GuestVM + River  etc, using gPXE (network booting 
via an eprom on the network card).

This might be used as a distributed compute farm, or for generic network 
device hardware, who knows?

Just thinking about future possibilities, thought I'd share.

Cheers,

Peter.
